Who is Allah for us. This life is indeed a test. A test for everyone from the Almighty Allah Subhan Wa Tallah. We, as Muslims are trying to prove ourselves to be the best ones so that we can stand with no guilt in front of our God on the day of judgment.
Nowadays, we all human beings are facing this pandemic situation, panic and anxiety attacks are natural because it is a part of human nature to respond like this. But Alhamdulilah being a Muslim we have this firm faith in Allah that He will not burden us with something which we can not bear.
In Surah Al-Baqarah Allah Subhan Wa Tallah says:
ALLAH DOES NOT BURDEN A SOUL BEYOND THAT IT CAN BEAR” (2:286)
CoronaVirus Attack As A Pandemic Disease:
It is said that after every 100 years, there comes a time when a certain pandemic disease attacks the world and destroys almost everything but not our faith and trust in our God, Allah. Trust is a huge entity. This is one of the things which are extremely beautiful about our religion Islam. We trust our God that He will test us but to the level where we can easily bear it.
Quran Says About Who is Allah:
WHOEVER PUTS HIS TRUST IN ALLAH; HE WILL BE ENOUGH FOR HIM. (65:3)
Even, our religious scholars are saying we need to take this pandemic situation seriously, We Muslims should take precautionary measures as they have been told by the Government.
- Wash our hands for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid religious and other gatherings.
- If you must have to visit somewhere wear a mask and gloves.
- Do not touch your face unnecessarily.
With all these precautionary measures we can pray that God bless us all and we should do “ASTAGHFAR” as much as we can. Because this all shows that Allah Subhana Wa Tallah is unhappy with us. So, recite “Surah Taubah” so that HE will forgive us and make this situation easy to handle. And we should ask for Maghfirah for our loved ones whom we have lost in this pandemic.
